Summary0005755: Caravan Guard Ghosts are still not appearing for slabs
DescriptionStarted a brand new 34.07 - caravan guards were jumped right at the map edge. I noticed that the corpse wasnt in my list of dwarves to memorialize and was hoping it might show up when the ghost did... but i'm looking at the ghost right now and Id Tinothtekkud, Ghostly Hammerdwarf is nowhere to be found on the craftsdwarf workshop list. I've used DFHack's Tweak Clear-Ghostly to remove the ghost and continue the fort - but i have no idea if he'll be back.

as i've continued to play this one out - i've gone through 12 or 13 axedwarves and speardwarves etc i've had to put down through 'alternate means' - they're only caravan guards, but if i had to say 'is it every time or not' i'd say yes. With tweak-ghostly working though - this isnt as 'major' as it was without it.

Same problem here. 34.10. I've even entombed the corpse. The coffin says "Owner: Ducim .., Ghostly Macedwarf". He is not listed at the craftsdwarf's for memorialization.

Confirmed for 34.11. I have ghosts of guards from a caravan wandering around my fort with no option to engrave a slab for them.

34.11 save may be helpful.

Here you go. save for 34.11 [^]

Repeat simple enough. It is necessary to drop the caravan of dwarves, along with security into the lava! The lava will burn the corpses, but the engraving is permitted only for merchants.

there is a way i figured to find "SOME" but not all dwarves that cannot be found, if your grave says ghostly instead of just the name it means the ghost has claimed the coffin but has not been buried yet, the thing i do is any time that happens is to remove the coffin and place it back down, freeing any original tennants to be reburied, it works half the time due to others not having bodies or the bodies not being accesible

I once had to bury a caravan escort's arm, as that was the only piece of him left. The rest of him might have survived and run off the map, as far as I can tell. What happens if he survived, then comes back (still alive) after I buried his arm?

Just to say this is now happening to bandits too, though I guess that's to be expected.

It's slightly more annoying in 40.05 as everyone in my fort was too terrified to eat or drink while the ghost was in sight of the food stockpile.

(It's just a shame that with such a great bugfix release it only takes one to make me miss dfhack again :(

I just had a similar issue ruin my fortress. Some dwarves raided me, I killed one, he came back as a ghost, and there was no way to remove him. My dwarves tasks were constantly "interrupted by ghost" so they would not eat, drink, or sleep and went insane.

Opened a ticket for it here with a save file as it seems similar but not identical [^]
